Seven dogs that were scheduled for euthanization Wednesday were instead granted a nine-day pardon by the Bibb County Animal Welfare Department.
Animal Welfare Director Sarah Tenon said her staff is working with the rescue organization Paws for Hope and Faith to try to get the dogs adopted by Jan. 22.
They are helping us to network the animals, she said. We want to reach our goal of zero euthanizations of healthy animals in the shelter.
The shelter can take up to 80 animals, but has only 37 runs for dogs. Tenon said she tries not to put more than one dog -- especially medium to large dogs -- in one run.
